Some minor side effects include acne, oily skin, and a not so minor one in baldness. But the side effects don’t stop here. As I’ve said, anabolic steroids raise testosterone levels via synthetic androgens. This confuses your body and as a result, it decreases and even stops your body’s own secretion of testosterone. Thus, during “off” cycles, testosterone becomes so low that the users have a hard time holding on to their gains resulting in a rapid loss of strength and muscle. Although anabolic steroids don’t cause the same “high” as other illegal drugs, this concept makes it prone to abuse and addiction.
In the end however you plan your testosterone cycle, assuming you supplement in a responsible manner, protect yourself against side-effects and live a healthy lifestyle to boot you should in most all cases enjoy a positive experience. Of course you need to be forewarned and this is not something we say to be cute. Once you run your first testosterone cycle and begin down the path of anabolic steroid use it will be very hard to turn back. Anabolic steroids are not addictive in a physical sense; there are no physical withdraw symptoms once use is discontinued. However, due to their effectiveness and due to the fact that gains of this nature cannot be made without their assistance, once you supplement youre going to be hooked. If this scares you or you foresee it as a problem turn away now. If not, hang on, because your life is about to change in ways you never could have imagined.
